Young Wonders Summer Camp is full of fun and educational activities for your child(ren). The summer is filled with activities that include science, arts and crafts, cooking projects, games, and physical activities, weekly field trips, and swimming. We are based in a structured, classroom environment, but enjoy lots of outdoor time too. The 2020 summer camp theme is "GOING FOR THE GOLD" in honor of the 2020 summer Olympics in Toyko, Japan. We will begin the summer with "Opening Ceremonies" on June 1! The summer is sure to be fun at YW Summer Camp! Register today to guarantee your child(ren)'s space!
